Tranquillity (1792) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2006
Bottle at the Rover in Göteborg with Gnoff. Orange-red colour with a thin head. Cherry and salty aroma. The taste continues on the same theme but is a bit disharmonic unless the temperature is warm enough. Good stuff (c)!

GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Pours a brownish amber honey w/ a full semi creamy froth. Aroma of dried dark fruits and rock candy. Medium nectar w/ ample residual effers. Crisp flavors of malted, dried dark fruits stewed in a pot full of gravel. Apricot, plumb, leather, earth, tobacco, and slight medicinal banana spice flavors emerge. Long finish w/ a blanced bittering. Finish has a slight sour citrus undertone. Overall: a dry style w/ complex flavors. Well balanced. Highly recommended.

vyvvy (5717) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 10, 2006
Pours very dark amber / mohagany with a ncie reddish hue. Good sized light tan head. The aroma has caramel malt, light bready smooth toffee and ice cream malt with some light spiciness. The malt is not as intense as you would expect. Medium body that is creamy then overcarbonation comes in to make the finish more crisp and fizzy. Taste starts with smooth toffee, light earthiness and some doughy flavors. The finish is spritzy with fruitness added to the other flavors. NIce beer - reminded me of a Belgium version of a doppelbock.

molassesfan (202) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 8, 2006
330ml bottle. Pours a dark cloudy brown with a nice white head that laces well. Spiced bready aroma with some raisins and apples. Flavor much the same with some fruitiness. However, tastes a bit like soap, detracting from an otherwise good beer. Finish is a bit dry.

holdenn (2110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 6, 2006
330 ml. Pours amber brown with a tall soapy fluffy head that slowly collapses. Rasins, yeast, and spiced aroma come to the nose. Sweet flavors, a little fruit, chocolate, and begian candi sugar with lots of lively carbonation on the tongue. A tasty brew.

Dark ruby/brown coloured, medium beige head, slight alcoholic and yeasty nose. Aroma is malty and fruity (raisins, plums, figs), with slight yeasty and nice spicy notes. Pleasant fruity aftertaste.

Marko (4869) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 31, 2006
Bottle shared with ozujsko at the Hopdevil in Zagreb
Poured a very deep / murky dark red colour with a small to medium beige head. Yeastyy nose, fruity as well... plum jam like... not that pronounced though. The taste is malt, fruits, some yeast, and some something I can’t read in my notes. Faint bitter aftertaste. Drinkable and nice.
